AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn swimming and diving program completed a successful year in the pool and the classroom as 19 student-athletes were selected as Scholar All-Americans by the College Swimming Coaches Associate of America, the organization announced Monday.
To qualify for Scholar All-America recognition, a student-athlete must have a GPA of 3.5 or higher and have qualified and competed at that year's NCAA Championships. Athletes that had a 3.5 or better GPA and recorded an NCAA provisional qualifying time or zone diving score but did not qualify for the NCAA Championships are named to the Honorable Mention squad.
Five Auburn men were named to the Scholar All-America First Team: James Disney-May, Zane Grothe, TJ Leon, Fraser McKean and Joe Patching. Four more Tigers – Forrest Davis, Cameron Jones, Tommy McKee and Justin Youtsey were named Honorable Mention.
On the women’s side, five Auburn swimmers picked up First Team honors: Emily Bos, Haley Krakoski, Natasha Lloyd, Aubrey Peacock and Sarah Reynolds. Five more women earned Honorable Mention nods: Morgan Mullins, Carly Scheper, Shanna Schuelein, Hallie Stupp and Mary Elizabeth Warhol.
In addition, Auburn’s men’s and women’s teams were chosen as Scholar All-America Teams by the CSCAA. The Auburn women posted a 3.15 GPA to make the CSCAA Team Scholar All-America list, while the men also received national honors with a 3.05 GPA.
The Team Scholar All-American Award is presented to college and university swimming and diving teams, who have achieved a team grade point average of 3.0 or higher. The award is presented twice annually, once in the fall semester and again in the spring to recognize teams achieving a 3.0 in the semester coinciding with the NCAA/NAIA/NJCAA/CCCAA Swimming and Diving Championships.
